Currently, Emanuel Carlos is a Research group leader of Flexible and Sustainable Electronics at CENIMAT|i3N and co-PI of 3 projects at national (GAMBIT, PRR R2U and BE.Neutral) and one at international level (SUPERIOT). He finished his PhD in 2021 in Nanotechnologies and Nanoscience, NOVA University Lisbon. He has been working in solution-based metal oxide electronics since 2015, focusing on sustainable materials and printing technologies (inkjet, flexographic and screen printing) for electronic devices. His work involves the design, deposition, and characterization of solutionbased metal oxide thin films and 2D materials, fabrication, and characterization of electronic devices (transistors, memristors, diodes, among others) and functional films (thermochromics) on flexible substrates. He is co-author of > 20 (9 as the first author) peer-reviewed papers in high-impact journals and 4 book chapters in this area. He is currently working in national (TORIS, GAMBIT, PRR

R2U and BE.NEUTRAL) and international (INFRACHIP, SUPERIOT and TERRAMETA) research projects.
